Camille Corot was born in 1796 and died in 1875. Corot's work formed a bridge between the traditional classical format of the 1800's and the romantic movement which eventually led to Impressionism. In 1825, he went to Italy to study, his work largely influenced by Claude Lorrain and Nicolas Poussin. On returning to France in 1828, he came under the influence of the painters in Barbizon. His landscape works appear to be seen through a soft veil, that offers the viewer an ability to not only witness the landscape, but serves as a welcoming invitation to participate.
